Easter Bunny Pancakes

It’s Easter Morning. Happy Easter to all our readers! Don’t settle for just any breakfast today, instead surprise your kids with some Easter bunny pancakes. Your kids will surely enjoy this “visit ” from the Easter bunny. Don’t forget they will need all the energy they can have for the Easter egg hunt. Be sure to check last week’s post for some cool Easter egg hacks.

The recipe that we will be using is a standard one and can be doubled or tripled for as many guests as you have. The pancakes turn out soft and fluffy. It’s quite easy to make them too. Mix the dry ingredients first: flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Then add in the wet ingredients, mixing well with each addition in order to have all the ingredients incorporated. The milk, oil and egg will go in last. If you want your pancakes to taste extra sweet and smell even more homey add a splash of either vanilla extract or almond extract. If you’ve woken up craving chocolate, add in some chocolate chips into the mixture. As if you won’t be eating chocolate during the day. Right. Sure!

To make a pancake bunny we need two circular shaped pancakes for the head and for the body. You want to make sure that one circle is bigger than the other. We’re actually creating the bunny shape from behind so we will need two small oval shapes for his paws. And, of course, two larger ovals for his ears. For his tail, you can use some whipped cream.

To easily create the shapes you want I would recommend using a squeeze bottle like we did in the video. If you can’t find any squeeze bottles, an old ketchup bottle would work just fine. This trick is the best for when you need to have shapes in your pancakes and works just as well for having a stack of perfectly round pancakes.

Heat up your skillet or griddle and add in either a tablespoon of vegetable oil or butter. Butter will give your pancakes a golden color. Then simply create the shapes that you need and flip the pancakes into the serving dish, lining them into a bunny shape.
